Look it up on you tube. Why would they (tyson and dawkins) make a video on poetry of science eh?
Sorry.

You're going to have to make a little more sense than that.

I know you can do it if you really, really try.

You are the one who should be embarrassed now. I made no suggestion that there should be bees. I was commenting on how I missed the fact that the tree was in his front room. Ergo my no bees indeed quote.
Your fail is almost a variation of Muphry's Law.
Who's Muphry?

One method would be:
promotors and enhancers. These could see your artificially produced crops start cross-breeding again.

<quoted text>Ahhh...so you laughed when i said 'mountain'...
they technically are mountains, but my neice and her hubby are out in WA and when they visited and I called them mtns, they kind of laughed...
they recently moved to Forks, for the sole purpose, I believe, to harrass the Twihards...
Yes, I laughed a little. But then I worked for the Minnesota Geological Survey when I was going to school. I spent part of one summer working around the Fargo Moorehead area where they use 5 foot intervals on the topo maps. Even then you will have only one line going through an entire map that covers a roughly ten mile by seven mile area. So they have elevations at the center of every square mile and many of those vary by a few, or not at all. When we were looking for one place we were told it was "at the top of the hill". Driving to fast on the country roads I zoomed past a place then realized that it was five feet higher than anywhere else for miles. Yup, that five foot elevation was "the hill".

<quoted text>Ummm...mars doesn't have the same atmosphere we do. it is thought it once did, and then did have a similar water cycle.
so you idea that the Earth's water cycle is unique is a faulty premise to start from.
Titan has the exact same cycle, only with methane.

Liquids evaporate, rise, condense and fall all the time.

I dunno where the mystery is...

i guess it's all relative..

the peaks behind my place are the 'roof' of MN. not the tallest, that's Eagle mtn, over by Langoliers, but their very close and a whole ridge of them.(with my favorite trout lake, a
little tarn stuck up amongst their peaks!)

I've spent time in the rockies and the weather patterns here are the same, just on a smaller scale. Mountains lite?

that is third grade level of understanding. It's like saying horse eats grass, so what. You haven't addressed the question I asked. How did these two different species, a plant and an insect co-evolve? So nothing created bees, they just sprang to life and started pollinating and found their niche. And yet there's nothing special about it. Please, don't give flowers to the woman in your life, because they probably don't mean anything as well. lol

ya someone here thinks bees are stupid they don't know any better, they are not aware of what they're doing just like some men in a bar. They just leave their dirt everywhere but shit happens.

Starting to wonder whether you need to see resp. a good science fiction movie, a counselor, a bee-whisperer, a woman from the sanitation department or sent you to the store to get more toilet-paper.;p

Insects have senses...so they are certainly aware.
